This series of twisted comedy dramas from Guardian journalist Charlie Brooker offers some disturbing food for thought.

In the first episode a royal is kidnapped—and will be executed unless the prime minister performs a humiliating act live on national TV. No spoilers, but you’re in for a surprise.

An exploration of modern mass communications and political spin, the series of three stories will make you laugh and cringe in equal measure.
